A bit of history:
FSV 1913 Ludwigshafen-Oggersheim is a German football club based in the Oggersheim district of Ludwigshafen, Rhineland-Palatinate. The club has advanced to the Regionalliga Süd (III) following an Oberliga (IV) title win in 2007.
The club was established in 1913 as VfR 1913 Oggersheim and in 1937 merged with SC Eintracht Oggersheim, which had been established in 1924 as the football department of the gymnsatics club Vereinigten Turnerschaft Oggersheim, to form SpVgg Oggersheim. The following year all of the area clubs were re-organized into a single association known as Gemeinschaft für Leibesübungen Oggersheim.
In the aftermath of World War II occupying Allied authorities ordered the dissolution of all organizations in the country, including sports and football clubs. A new association was formed as ASV Oggersheim in 1945 and its football department became independent in 1949 as Fussball Sportverein Oggersheim. The footballers played as a lower tier lower side until winning their way to the third tier Amateurliga Südwest for a single season in 1963-64. FSV made a DFB-Pokal (German Cup) appearance in 1978 going out in the first round 0:3 to 1. FC Kaiserslautern in the opening round.
A 1992 Landesliga Ost (VI) title led to promotion to the Verbandsliga Südwest (V), followed by a further promotion two years later to the Oberliga Südwest(IV).
